A Bit More with The Sunday Funnies

Today’s Sunday Baldo reminds me of the old Grin and Bear It Sundays.

Someone at GoComics (temporarily) dropped the “K” from today’s Half Full,
giving an excuse to link to this history of comic’s color.

Looks like Dan Piraro’s Bizarro is taking a cue
from Dan Piraro’s other graphic project.

I apologize for the intrusion and for not having a more direct source, but just found a comment on my blog about John Allen, whose Nest Heads ended abruptly last year. If the report’s correct, Allen died of brain cancer in September. https://nebushumor.wordpress.com/2020/07/30/the-comic-strip-nest-heads-is-ending-like-10-minutes-from-now-it-looks-like/comment-page-1/#comment-18043

Today’s Bizarro is, by the way, a redraw of a strip from the early 90s. I believe it was a weekday strip in the original run.

(And, it’s a good joke, worth remaking, and I don’t intend to begrudge Piraro for reusing a joke after decades when maybe four people will spot it.)

Joseph: The source for John’s passing would seem to be a comment left on his entry at Lambiek’s Comiclopedia https://www.lambiek.net/artists/a/allen_john.htm
That entry is adapted almost entirely from his Creators biography
https://www.creators.com/author/john-allen

I am tempted to write an obituary for John, but after doing a bit of searching I can find no backup for his passing. It is not that I don’t believe Kristin, I would just like some kind of additional confirmation.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
